Women in NFTs : Part one – Entering the world of digital assets
18 Mar 2022
In this special edition episode, Global Head of our Investment Funds and Regulatory group Phil Graham is joined by Adriana Krawcewicz and Maria Popova to discuss the emerging world of NFTs. Adriana is a freelance senior art director, fashion digital NFT artist and consultant, based in London. Maria is a producer, digital entrepreneur, and co-founder of Shiny, a boutique NFT ecosystem with a focus on empowering women in the digital space. Tech and art industries have historically been dominated by men, and the NFT space is following a similar trajectory - women still make up only about 15 per cent of crypto users, while female artists account for only 16 per cent of NFT sales, according to Maria's research.
In part one of this two-part series, Phil, Adriana, and Maria define NFTs, what this emerging technology means for artists, and the value of the #NFTcommunity in supporting women in the digital asset space.
